RESEARCH DAY

PAGNY and its Health and Research Foundation hosts its annual Research Day to highlight the extraordinary contributions PAGNY’s rising stars are having on the field of medicine.

Greetings,

The PAGNY Health and Research Foundation, Inc. is excited to invite you to the Virtual PAGNY Research Day on Wednesday, December 1, 2021, from 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM. The goal of the PAGNY Research Day is to provide a forum for PAGNY physicians and allied health professionals to share their research and scholarship.

If you attend the “Clinical Research Presentations” activity on Research Day 2021, you will be eligible for CME. The New York Medical College designates this live activity a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1.0 Credit™. Clinicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity

PAGNY employs more than 4,000 physicians and allied health professionals and works within the nation’s largest municipal health care system. Therefore, PAGNY’s research projects are focused on identifying innovative strategies to improve the health of the most vulnerable populations of New York City and severely under-represented in biomedical research.

Over 50 research abstracts were submitted this year and are being reviewed by our esteemed panel of PAGNY physicians and outside reviewers. On Research Day, the top three winners will present their research, and we would be honored if you would join us.

Please RSVP by Tuesday, November 30, 2021, by clicking the RSVP button and registering.
